On Friday 8 December, the Safe and Sound team will be dressing up ALL day in festive costume to help raise money to support young people affected by sexual exploitation and abuse across Derby and Derbyshire.
Last year, Safe and Sound's Marketing & Development Manager Rhiannon dressed up i different festive costumes all day every day in December until Christmas Eve and raised more than £2000 for Safe and Sound. This amount helped one young person receive the full support they needed to move to safety following abuse.
We hope you can help us to achieve similar success this year.
Our team will be coming to work, attending external meetings and supporting young people dressed as 'Festive Fools'. Look out for our pictures documenting our foolishness on the day!
We hope you will take part yourself the following week from 11-15 December by dressing up in festive fancy dress and getting sponsored by friends, family and colleagues for doing so. Find our more here:
If you're unable to take part, please consider sponsoring our team to be Festive Fools for the day!
To support one young person to Move to Safety costs us £1,800. By raising money as a Festive Fool or supporting our Festive Fool team, you will be helping young people to get expert support and move to safety following sexual exploitation and abuse.
